Big Finish 8th Doctor Stranded 2

2020 is not treating the Eighth Doctor well.

Marooned in the UK, stuck in one house, isolated from his TARDIS… but now he rediscovers adventure in a brand-new full-cast audio box set.

The TARDIS is still stranded –but the healing process has begun. After living in Baker Street for months, the Doctor, Liv and Helen find their new friends becoming curious about who they really are. But is it wise to tell them, when their future –and their past –are filled with danger?And in the shadows, the Curator is watching.

Doctor Who: Stranded 2, due for release in March 2021, is now available to pre-order as a collector’s edition CD box set (priced at £24.99), or on download (at £19.99) exclusively from www.bigfinish.com.

Producer David Richardson said: “Things have moved on a little since Stranded 1. The Doctor and his friends are no longer stranded in time –just in space! With the ship able to move backwards and forwards through London history, the Doctor gets to take his extended Baker Street family through their own pasts and futures. And there might just be an Ogron on the way…”

Paul McGann returns as the Doctor, forced to live in domestic bliss with his friends, played by Nicola Walker (Liv Chenka) and Hattie Morahan (Helen Sinclair). Joining them for four superb stories set in swinging London are Rebecca Root (Tania Bell), Tom Price (Sergeant Andy Davidson), Clive Wood (Mr Bird), Tom Baker (the Curator) and Jon Culshaw (Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart).

Dead Timeby Matt Fitton

The Doctor wants to take the TARDIS on a test flight. But he has rather more passengers than he’d like. Soon, the crew are stranded once again in an uncertain future. One where planet Earth appears to be dead. And very soon, so will any visitors…

When the Doctor dips into his past to help TARDIS repairs in the present, Andy joins him on a trip to UNIT. In the 1970s, young soldier Ron Winters has just met lab assistant Tony Clare. But in 2020, they need Liv and Helen’s help when their memories start falling apart…

Baker Street Irregulars by Lisa McMullin

The Doctor takes Zakia and Aisha tosee some family history: their grandmother had her own secret life in Baker Street, during World War II. As Tania and Liv try to defuse an unexploded bomb, the sisters face explosive revelations of their own.

The Long Way Round by John Dorney

Something is wrong with Earth’s future –so the Doctor decides to see it for himself. But very soon, the travellers are captured. Someone seems to know their every move. An interrogator wants answers, but do they even know the right questions?

Doctor Who:Stranded 2is now available to pre-order as a collector’s edition CD box set (priced at £24.99), or on download (at £19.99) exclusively from the Big Finish website.

Big Finish listeners can save even more money with a bundle of all four box sets, pre-ordering the entire series for just £88 as a collector’s edition CD box set or £79 as a digital download.

    I don’t know the 8th Doctor audios at all…anyone know what he keeps in his bag? Sonic? Jelly Babies?, Spoons?, his old wig from the movie?
    I keep seeing promos with him wearing it so I just wondered if it’s ever mentioned.

      I’ve just finished listening to the “leather coat” era, and they’ve never mentioned his bag.

      The coat got pawned in Stranded 1.

    Is stranded 1 a good jumping on point?

      I would say so yes, as it was designed that way.

      i, m working through a single releaes and one part of a boxset. I,m onto the second part of The Kamelion Trilogy and 10th and River. Then its swiftly onto the TLV stories, Classic doctors New Monsters 1 and 2, The Sixth and Peri Boxset, Robots 1 and 2 before cracking the doom coalition and Ravenous series then finally Stranded. By then umpteen more will have been released. Enjoy listening them in the evening for an hour or so why,llst the girlfriend does her soaps. There just doesn,t seem to be enough hours in the day of late, so any chance i can get to relax i will.

      Ergon I would suggest listening to Robots after you have done Ravenous.

      I thought Robots was more standalone or a follow on from Robophobia and separate from the mentions by Liv chenka in ‘Dark eyes’ etc…regarding Kaldor.

      Robots is set during Ravenous 2, as stated on the website

      you don’t need to listen to the robots to understand the story in ravenous at all, so listen to that whenever.

      I,ll leave that till i,ve completed the ravenous series then. Stranded 1 goes last. Thanks for both your comments.

    When I saw…

    “And there might just be an Ogron on the way…”

    …it got my hopes up of a return by Doctor Ogron, but Stranded is set before the Eighth Doctor Time War series isn’t it?
